Potato Salad

This is a modification of the potato salad my Mom has always made. Warm weather always says "Potato Salad time" to me!!!

6-8 large potatoes boiled in the skins
1 yellow onion chopped
2 stalks celery
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup miracle whip
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
1/4 yellow mustard
2 hard boiled eggs

Boil potatoes until fork goes in easily. Pour potatoes into a colander and allow to cool for at least an hour.(potatoes can be cooked & refrigerated up to 2 days in advance, but don't peel until ready to make the salad) When potatoes are cool, peel skin (cold potatoes are easiest to peel). Cut potatoes into 1 inch dices. In a small bowl combine chopped celery, chopped onions, mayonnaise, miracle whip, relish and mustard. Mix together thoroughly then mix into potatoes being sure to evenly coat all potatoes. Slice hard boiled eggs and garnish top of salad. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate a minimum of one hour before serving.
